Southern Ortjo Interests.
There is quite an excitement in Spo
kane over Southern Oregon gold fields,"
said M. D. Maboner, an Eastern Oregon
mining roan, at the Imperial last even
ing. He had jnst returned from Spo
kane, from which city be said over 20
mining men left for Grants Pass within
a tew days as a result of favorable re
ports from experts sent down last sum
mer. Mr. Maboney became so impressed
with the spirit of the Spokane people
that he has decided to visit Josephine
county immediately with a view to get
ting hold of some of the promising ledg
es I here.
"Southern Oregon is an old raining
country," Mr. Mahoney said, ''but it is
old only in placer mining, Millions
have been taken out ol creek beds and
hillside pockets down there within the
past 45 years, but the country has never
been prospected (or lasting ledges.
When the placer miners of early days
ailed to make big wages with a pan or
rocker or sluice boxes, or did not succeed
iu following some rich hillside pocket lo
its biding place, they left the country
for other placer fields. Many ledges
have been worked in a nap-hazard way
with the aid of an arrastra, in recent
years, but just as soon as the pay streak
gave out, the ledge was abandoned.
Many of these abandoned ledges are now
proving true fissure veins and Colorado
capital has succeeded in making divi
dend-paying, whose enterprises always
bring other miners out in quest of prop
erty adjoining. In this respect mining
men are like sheep and Spokane people
are heading Southern Orr-gonward, be
cause thoy know of some quartx mines
being operated there.
"Southern Oregon is the most access
ible mining region in the world and its
mines can be worked the year round.
Its being so close and convenient has
worked against its development hereto
fore, but it is now engaging the allentiou
of moneyed mining men at last, and I
predict a boom for that region within
the next year." Oregonian.
Captain Ahorn states that from dif
ferent sources ol information he is led to
believe th public forest lands com
prise from one fourth to possibly one
half the areaof the Philippines, or from
20,000.000 lo 40,000,000 acres. There
sre fully B.OOJ.OOO acre of virgin forests
owned by the state in the Islunds of
Mindoro and Paradua. The Island of
Mindanao, with an area ol some 20,000
000 acres, is almost entiroly covered
with timber, and even in the Province
of Cayagao, in Luzon, there are more
than 2,000,000 acres of forest.
In other provinces of Luzon, especially
in the country close to Manila, much of
the timber has been cut, and to fill large
contracts the lumbermen are obliged to
go quite a distance from the city in
order to find a suitable tract.
Captain Ahern mentions tracts of
virgin forests to be se.n on the south
ern Islands where from 10,000,000 to 20,-
000,000 cubic feel of magnificent timber
per acre was standing, with trees more
than 150 feet In height, the trunks clear
of branches foi 00 feet and more than
four feet in diameter, tie states that in
these forests there are millions of cubic
feet of timber, which Bhould be cut out
in order to thin this dense growth, so

There Is a large variety of valuable
gum, rubber and gutta-percha troes, 17
dye woods and the ylang ylang, the oil
from the blossoms of which latter tree
is the base of so many perfumes.
There are no forest roads or river
driveways in the Islands considered
worthy of mentioning. At present the
trees are felled far from any road, and
hauled out very slowly by one or more
cariboos, with the result Hint many
tracts are left untouched.

The Mining Exhibit.
To the Editor It has now been over
two months since the Mining A Com
mercial Club here was organized, and I
know of no bettor way to reach the pub
lic ear regarding the work it has already
accomplished and proposes to accom
plish than through the press. The club
is now in working order, the organiza
tion is practically com pie to, the books
and stationery are purchased, and the
committees are all appointed. The
membership is now over sixty, but by a
little effort that number could be in
creased to one hundred or more. A
large membership however is of no par
ticular advantage. Better have fewer
and those be willing to do something.
The club levied a small assessment on
each number two months ago and that
has been nearly expended, but the busi
ness men and mining men of Grants
Pass are not close-fisted, and when
more money is needed it can easily be
raised, provided the expenditures are
judicious. lour hundred circular let-
tors have been sent out relative to mln-
ng matters, and quite a number of let
ters writtton by the secretary. The
mining exhibit is meeting with encour
agement but two hundred or more cir
cular letters will needs be sent out soon
to supplement the first ones. If wo had
alxmt t?u4 on hand and could send
someone out for a couple of months to
visit every mine in this district, to write
it up and bring iu the ore samples, take
the photographs etc., and wo could have
fine complete exhibit goon, and of the
very best possible to obtain. Hut as
there is not anything like that amount
of money in the treasury or obtainable
just now the idea is not practical. Last
ear a fine mineral exhibit was sent
from Grants Pass to New Orleans at
cost of about (100. It did nut represent
alf the urines of Southern Oregon. It
was placed on exhibition in only one
city. The exhibit that the Mining &
Commercial Club huro will prepare will
bo a permanent one. It will be in three
or four suctions and can bo exhibited at
one time in Grants PaHX, Portland, Kan
Francisco, and If necessary Buffalo,
N. V., at the Pun-Amuricnn exposition.
Tho mining mon Uiko hold of the mat
ter of an exhibit from the standpoint
that Grunts Puns is vitully dependent
jn tho success of this mining district,
while tho miners caru nothing about the
uccofs of Grants Pass on tho business
interests nnd therefore, think tlioburdon
of this exhibit should full on the busi
ness interests of the town. They do not
object to tire small too charged to help
pay expenses, but they do not want to
bother with the rest of the detai'i and
some of our mining mon will not bother
thcmeslves either. The Mining & Com
mcrciul Club will finally complete its
exhibit by personally writing up the
mines, collecting samples, and colluding
the fee. It may be possiblu to get the
first section together through corro-
IHindonce, which is by fur tho cheapest
plan, but the way to get up the complete
ollection Is to send some 0110 out among
the minors at work.
Only three committees, out of the ten
standing committees, have yet been cal
led together, and there is an abundance
of work mapped out for each one. But
it is best not to gut too much work on
hand at once.
Tho principal items of exiienso of the
M. & C. Club so fur uro as follows:
Postage, ('1.05; printing & books, (12.25 ;
miscellaneous exiHjnses, including foes

I hope something will occur soon to
make our business men see, the great
benefits w hich run bo secured to Grants
Pass by a united effort. Every member
of the club should be in attendance at
the quarterly meeting on Tuesday, Jan
uary, 7, 1001. At that time some action
should lie taken towards pushing the

Borne shrewd lobbying is being done
In tbe senate la the interests of those
who wish to prevent action on the
Nicaragua Canal bill at this session,
and it ia being done largely in the name
of patriotism. The lobbyists have
taken advantage of the strong public
sentiment in favor of Amerlcanixing the
Hay-Pauncefote treaty, not to much
because they are patriotic, as because
they saw therein chance, although
slim one, to preveut the passage of the
Nicaragua canal bill at (hit session,
aud not a lew senators who voted for the
Americanising amendments to the treaty
uuder tbe impression that they had
given their patriotism the benefit of the
doubts they entertained, really dial so
because of the insidious influences
brought to bear on them by the lobbyists
the employ of the Panama canal
Company. Now that it it certain that
the amended treaty will be ratified by
the senate, probably before the Christ
mas recess, which will begin next Fri
day, the question of whether it will
delay action on the canal bill, it being
asked. Secretary Hay expresses the
opinion that England will reject the
amended treaty, but that opinion it not
held by many tenatort. Should Eng
land reject the treaty, the passage of a
joint resolution by congress, declaring
the Clayton Bulwer treaty abrogated is
regarded as certain, bnt all this, at tho
slick lobblstt very well know, will con
sume time, and if action on the canal
it made to wait upon tbe settlement of
he treaty question it will hardly take
place at thit session. Henatort who
realise this, are now urging that the
Nicaragua canal bill shall be taken up
and passed, regardless of treaties and of
what other nations may have to say
Tbe annual convention of the American
nstituteot Architects, held la Washing
ton, did not like the model of the pro

tion, asking congress not to adopt the
plant which hive been prepared, and
declaring that "the country will be
ustly dissatisfied, if tbe very best
possible improvements to the president'!
mansion shall not be secured." In
addition, committee of eminent
architects wat appointed to personally
see that congress was made acquainted
with the wishes of the convention on
